TO THE FACULTY 

For all the aid you've given us, 

Your guiding hands and loyal trust, 
For all the hours you've sacrificed 

To lead us on the way of right; 
For all, O Pilots, friends so true, 

We owe eternal thanks to you! 
You've blown the sail of '32, 

You've steered our ship -- our port is due.

The primitive man got his living out of such wild plants and animals 
as he could find. The civilized man does not rely wholly on these alone. 

However, the three major requisites of the primitive man — food, 
shelter, and clothing — are still invaluable to the civilized man. 

The need of clothing built the New Bedford Textile School, and its 
purpose is to supply the clothing world with able men who will be leaders 
in their chosen field.

Without the able assistance of Mr. Acomb and other members of the 

faculty, this volume of the Fabricator would not have been 

achieved, so to them, we wish to express our heartiest 

appreciation and thanks.

THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 




A HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 



DURING the month of August, 1895, a Board, consisting of fifteen members 
was entrusted with the authoritative power provided by the Chapter 475, 
under the Acts of 1895, to incorporate and establish The New Bedford Tex- 
tile School. The articles were adopted and Geo. W. Hillman was posted to 
serve as the Clerk of the corporation. During the course of the first annual 
meeting, the following officers were elected; Wm. J. Kent, President; Isaac B. 
Tompkins, Jr., Treasurer; Geo. W. Hillman, Clerk. Immediately various 
committees on Building, Finance, Machinery, Education, etc. were formed and 
work commenced in full swing. 

In April. 1897, the City of New Bedford appropriated the sum of 
$25,000 for the use of producing this school of Textile. Arts and in the month 
of March, the following year, the State of Massachusetts reciprocated with a 
similar amount towards the same end-point. 

Material work now began. Land was purchased and the committee on 
Building announced themselves open for bids. In a short time the first edifice, 
consisting of what now is the central portion of the building proper, was com- 
pleted. C P. Brooks was engaged as Managing Director and a staff of able in- 
structors was assembled. 

At the time of the school building dedication, Oct. 14, 1899, the Board 
of Trustees consisted of Geo. E. Briggs, President: Isaac B. Tompkins, Jr., 
Treasurer; Robert Burgess, Clerk. A week later the portals of this institution, 



12 



1932 THE FABRICATOR 



the pride of the local Textile center, were thrown open for day students, and, 
on Oct. 23, special evening classes were begun for evening students. 

The building itself, at this time was only a three story affair, with a small 
basement. The power for machine drive was furnished by a 40 h. p. steam 
engine, using rope and belt transmission. On the main floor were situated the 
office, exhibition room or library and the machine room for the carding and 
spinning department. On the second floor were two recitation rooms, a Direc- 
tor's room and a machine room for weaving and slashing. On the third floor 
were two more recitation rooms, the largest being used for the designing depart- 
ment, a dark room for photographic operations and a machine room for spool- 
ing, winding and hand looms. 

This constituted the nucleus of the present institution, a forerunner 
of a remarkable realization. The records of the first enrollment show a roll- 
call of eleven day students and 183 night students. This paltry (in our 
present estimation) quantity was easily accommodated, but when an increased 
enrollment did away with all conveniences and comfort, and when two more 
courses, chemistry and knitting, were included in the curriculum schedule, an- 
other addition had to be erected. This extension brought the building proper 
to the end line on Maxfield St. The first floor held two more class rooms and 
a machine room for winding and warping, the second floor was equipped for 
knitting, while the third floor was turned over for chemistry. 

Mr. Wm. E. Hatch was appointed President on April 15, 1904. Later in 
1905, further expansion was again inevitable, being brought about by the 
steadily increasing enrollment. This resulted in another addition to the rear 
of the southern wing, going in a westerly direction. Now many needed com- 
forts were realized, for locker and toilet rooms were produced, a shower room 
installed and a small testing laboratory equipped. 

The last addition, a large separate building, running in a northerly direc- 
tion along the Purchase St. front, rounded out the present day structure, a mag- 
nificent, modern, imposing seat of Textile Arts. It is classed as the most efficient 
textile school in the surrounding country. 

The original building contained 11 rooms with about 20,000 square 
feet of floor space. The present buildings contain 50 rooms with over 100,000 
square feet of floor space. All departments are equipped with up-to-date 
machinery, especially designed for instruction purposes. The total valuation 
of the school reaches the proximity of about $275,000. About one half of 
the equipment has either been donated or loaned. 

The department of Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing is well equipped with 
two laboratories fitted with apparatus necessary for all and any type of work 
along that line. Here is produced about seventy-five per cent of noise, all the 
odors, and quite a few new color combinations on socks obtained by fair means 
or foul from the Knitting Department. The powers that be, consist of Mr. 

13 



THE FABRICATOR 



19 3 2 



Busby, the headmaster, and Mr. Brooks, Mr. Weymouth and Mr. Broadfoot, 
his assistants. 

The Weaving and Designing department is especially adapted to train 
students in theory and practise along the lines of creative designing, cloth 
analysis, warp preparation, weaving of all forms of cloth, and all other mill 
knowledge. Mr. Holt is at the head of the Designing Department, while Mr. 
Acomb is in charge of the weave room. Both Mr. Beardsworth and Mr. 
Fawcett prove to be very able assistants. 

The Mechanical department indeed is one imposing and eminent section 
of the school. Here Mr. Crompton with the assistance of Mr. Bayreuther and 
Mr. Walton, expounds the theories of Mechanical Drawing, Electricity, Steam 
Engineering, Mill Engineering, and Shop practise. The department is equipped 
with a large, modern machine shop and spacious drawing rooms. 

The Cotton Yarn Preparation department is indeed the pillar upon which 
the entire textile business of cotton manufacturing rests. This department is 
equipped with all the up-to-date machinery, from pickers to spinning frames. 
Under the experienced tutorship of Mr. Holden and Mr. Gourley the student is 
assured of a complete knowledge of practical and theoretical Carding and 
Spinning of fine cotton yarns. 

The Knitting department, under the direct supervision of Mr. Manning 
is indeed praiseworthy. The knitting room is just crammed with the latest 
models of knitting machines of all descriptions. Much work is likewise done in 
the testing room and the dye laboratory of this department. The: rayon 
winding room is the newest addition to the school. It possesses all the latest 
winding machines which wind rayon from skeins into any conceivable form 
of cops, cones, bobbins and spools.

193 2 THE FABRICATOR 

YE CLASS HISTORY 

Freshman Year 

1929 - 1930 

Fourteenth of September! 

How well we remember! 

With hearts forlorn 

We woke that morn 

To learn that on study we must intrude, 

Must not be uppish and yet not a prude, 

But just assume a professional attitude. 

We soon joined the Phi Psi or the D. K. 
We joined other clubs, then, without delay, 
A meeting was called which all must attend 
To choose leaders to help us attain our end. 
We had class spirit — and many, many claim 
It was this fine quality gained for us fame 
And helped us acquire an honored name. 

Herbert Lindberg, President, wise and benign, 
"Bunny" Childs, Vice-President, leader so fine, 
Our Scribe, Mildred Hoxie, we all admire, 
Our Treasurer, Dutton, was a live wire. 
With such able officers we heard folks say, 
"A wonderful class that will be some day, 
A class that for others will lead the way". 

The wisdom of this class surely was known 

On the day the exam returns were shown. 

Freshmen may come and Freshmen go 

But this is a class you'd like to know. 

In all their work and all their play, 

A commendable spirit they'd always display 

While smarter and better they grew day by day. 

It was a year of work and fun, 

Continuing joyous — as 'twas begun. 

In athletics and activities — you may surmise, 

We had great success, with many a surprise. 

Then came June and Graduation. 

Why did the Freshmen show such elation? 

To Textile they'd come again after vacation. 

15 



THE FABRICATOR 1932 



Junior Year 

1930 - 1931 

This year of course 

We were back, almost full force, 

With our old courage aboiling 

We went right in toiling. 

Working hard our endurance to test, 

Sharing our joys and our woes with the rest, 

We all were determined to do our best. 

Class officers now we to you tell: 

Wilbur Wright, our President, you all know well. 

Then Ed Lafferty for Vice-President, 

George Hotte to treasurer our money not spent. 

Mildred Hoxie kept our records all year. 

From September to June it surely was clear 

That our spirit was fine and our work sincere. 

For a Junior class of the N. B. T. S. 

Were we successful? Decidedly, "Yes". 

The Junior hop we gave brought delight, 

That was the night we showed scintillating light. 

When the last day turned round and toiling was o'er, 

And we watched our hopes towards the sky gaily soar, 

We hoped that still greater success for us was in store. 

Senior Year 

1931 - 1932 

Back we came eagerly, as Seniors now, 

Before us the Freshmen respectfully bow — 

But soon the event of the year had begun 

And Seniors and Freshmen were banded as one. 

After a summer of fun and rest. 

We continued our search for learning with a zest 

Hoping to make this last year our best. 

Our class chose Ed. Lafferty as President 

And Brother Akin as his subsequent, 

Mildred Hoxie was our scribe for the year hence, 

To Edgar Lachance was entrusted our pence. 

Our first gesture this year was to treat 

The schoolmates, who all were so pleasant to meet. 

With a dance that with friendliness seemed replete. 



16 



1932 THE FABRICATOR 



The next Senior Function, The Mid-year Ball, 
Was a gala event and enjoyed by all. 
This swell little dance, an all-school affair, 
Nothing very new, but a good time was had there. 
In athletics we've done well as we may 
And in some cases our Seniors held sway, 
Their memory is a joy to us in most every way. 

'Tis hard now to find words appropriate 

To express the thoughts of a graduate — 

Joy at completing a task begvn, 

Sorrow to leave those whose friendship we've won. 

In the future, in days of joy and distress, 

The happiest memories that we'll possess 

Will be those of our years at N. B. T. S.

THE FABRICATOR 1932 



CLASS PROPHECY 

THE winter of 1950 was indeed bitter and cold. I shivered involuntarily 
against the sweeping, northern winds, buttoning my thin, well-worn coat 
closer to my body. Ah, that once splendid coat ($18.50 it cost me at Berk- 
man's Emporium) , was now a relic of five winters. Poor old Berky, — his 
sales were the talk of the town, till he was caught setting fire to some oiled 
rags in the cellar of his shop, in the process of instigating a "Fire Sale" ■ — 
he'll be out of jail in two more years. 

Braving the blasting draughts, I set my course for Front St., where I 
knew I'd find shelter and a few hour's company in Morton's Saloon. Phil's 
fortune was good since the lifting of the Prohibition ban. On entering, I 
was greeted by him — still that tall, genial Phil. 

"Ho, commarad!" he called, "Come and pull up by the fire". 

No one being about, he soon joined me, bringing along a dark colored 
bottle which we immediately began to embrace in the customary manner. After 
a few gulps and a few more gasps and gurgles, I began to feel the heat reentering 
my ice-clogged veins. 

"I've got some news for you, old timer," Phil began, filling his ever- 
ready pipe. "You remember Dutton, don't you? Well, they sent the poor 
chap to the Crazy-house in Taunton today." 

"No kidding," I could not hide my natural surprise, "what happened?" 

"Well," answers Phil, "I was up to Kroudvird's bakery for some pretzels 
when Akin came in. Akin's the Love-lorn editor of the "Times", you know, 
and he told us about it. It seems as though Dutton, on the verge of perfecting 
that new developer he was experimenting with during the Thesis course at 
Textile, couldn't stand the strain and so his mind twisted over." 

"Gee, that certainly is tough on Mrs. Dutton, she ". 

The door suddenly flew open, admitting a draught that would freeze any- 
one's whiskers, and none other than Jackie Broadmeadow. 

"Hi fellers!" he chattered, blowing on his numbed hands, "Fix me up 
a double Martini and a quart of Buckeye, will you Phil?" 

"What are you doing now, Peep," I asked, hugely enjoyed, seeing him 
again. 

"Oh, nothing much. My wife has a good job at the B. V. D. factory on 
the night shift so I just hang around and kill time." 

He threw down the potent mixture that Phil concocted with graceful ease, 
picked up his quart bottle and with a nod, made off. Watching him through 
the window, I saw him get into a waiting machine where sat a fur-encovered 
girl. 

36 



1932 THE FABRICATOR 



"So his wife works on the night shift, eh?" I mused. 

"Yeah," answers Phil, "she works, he plays". 

"Oh well, he was always kind of 'tricky' that way." 

Getting back to my warm seat, and incidentally the bottle, my eyes fell 
upon a newspaper headline, announcing a wrestling bout between "Ping Pong" 
Perry and "Lockjaw" Lindberg. What a small place this world of ours really 
is! Glancing down the sheet, another item, an Obituary note, struck my eyes 
with a bang! — 

"George H. Hotte, of the "Hottentots", the dancing son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Hotte, met his death to-day when he lost his step while tap dancing on a wire 
over the Niagara Falls." 

Poor Georgie Porgie! Even though he always did go for the extremes, 
one felt sorry for him. I stretched out comfortably in my seat and closed my 
eyes. I could hear Phil clinking glasses behind the bar, then suddenly I heard 
no more, for I had joined the band of Morpheus for a trip to the place people 
go when they fall asleep. 

Slowly a scene opened up before me. I saw myself in the next world 
knocking at the Golden Gate. Old Peter himself answered my call. 

"What would you, Soul?" he inquired, frowningly. 

"Sire, I am but an abandoned graduate of the N. B. Textile School, I — " 

"What? From Textile?" exclaimed Pete, sorely vexed, "Get ye hence! 
The last lad from Textile that I admitted, — Lafferty was his name, — preferred 
crooning instead of playing the regulation harp. Well, I sent him where all 
crooners belong ■ — down below!" 

I had only to turn around and retrace my steps. On the way I observed 
another soul wandering about. 

"Hey," it called, "where's the Jewish reservation around here". 

Approaching, I found it to be no other than Max Rothkop. 

"Why Max, what caused you to leave the other world?" 

"Oh, I just bumped-off Mark Dubiel and so they burned me up in the elec- 
tric chair, a few minutes ago. I don't care 'cause dat guy always did give me a 
pain, always wearing yellow ties an' all dat. Hey, I gotta get goin' an' find my 
place. See you again durin' a vacation." 

So I just kept walking down till I came upon another gate over which a 
sign, "Purgatory", hung. Leaning against the gate was Bunny Childs! 

"Hello," says he, "you can't see the keeper just now, he's gone for a 
drink of water and I'm tending the gate for him meanwhile". 

"Why, Bunny, what happened to you?" 

37 



THE FABRICATOR 1932 

"Well I had a good job in New York, but once, in taking a drink I mis- 
took HNOa for H2O. Then, in taking my entrance exams for "upstairs" I 
found that I had to make up some back work, and so they sent me here." 

"It must be kind of lonesome for you around here. Have you any pals?" 

"Oh sure! Dennis and Howland were here for a while but they were 
caught shooting dice and were sent down below a few hundred years. La- 
chance and Amaral are the only ones left up here." 

"Its going to be kind of tough on Dennis and Howland, isn't it," I of- 
fered, sorrowing for their fate. 

"Naw, it shouldn't be so tough. Cygan. Lynam and Wojcicki are down 
there working in the Machine Shop, doing repair work on the furnaces. They 
ought to speak a good word for both of them and then they'll get off easy. 
Might even get stoker jobs. They'll — " 

Somebody was shaking me. I awoke with a start. 

"Come on, Tom, wake up. I've got to close up. Mildred was just here 
looking for her husband. Gosh, is she getting fat! For the world of me, I 
can't see how she does it. Her husband drinks like a fish and they're as poor 
as church mice." 

"I wish I was awake when she came in, Phil, I haven't seen Mildred since 
graduation." I yawned, rubbing the sleep from my eyes, "Where's Dorothy 
Taber now, anyway?" 

"I don't know," answers Phil, "Several years ago she was jilted at the 
altar by some salesman. Ever since then I haven't heard of her. Let's go, I'm 
tired and hungry." 

Once again the blasty breath of the wintery night smashed against me as 
we went out. It sure was bitter cold. I almost hated to go back to my bare, 
attic room, where I knew it wasn't much warmer than out here. 

"Good night, Tom. Hope you get your job tomorrow." 

"Thanks, Phil. I'll see you again. Good-night."

DUTY 

To do your little bit of toil, 

To play life's game with head erect; 
To stoop to nothing that would soil 

Your honor or your self-respect; 
To win what gold and fame you can, 
But first of all to be a man. 

To know the bitter and the sweet, 
The sunshine and the days of rain; 

To meet both victory and defeat, 

Nor boast too loudly nor complain; 

To face whatever fates befall, 

And be a man throughout it all. 

To seek success in honest strife, 
But not to value it so much 

That, winning it, you go through life 
Stained by dishonor's scarlet touch. 

What goal or dream you choose, pursue, 

But be a man whate'er you do!

CLASS OF 1933 

L^l IFE seems to us. not a state of being but a process of becoming." That's 
Le our motto — not one agreed upon by popular vote, but simply one that 
we unconsciously live up to. 

It was with this in mind that on a particular warm and sleepy day. more 
suited for swimming and tennis than for the first day of school, that the 
members of this class literally tore themselves away from vacationing to return 
to school, almost as strong in number as when they left the June previous. It 
was really a matter of little time before we fell in full stride again. A class 
election resulted in the following outcome: — Raymond Warner assumed the 
position of President: William McArdle that of Vice-President: James Lague 
was entrusted with the treasury, while little Stasia Strahoska became the Class 
Secretary. Both Roger Gentilhomme and Norman Gobeil were chosen to 
affiliate with "The Fabricator" staff. 

Athletes? This class sports a whole flock of 'dem dar animals'. This 
field certainly is our specialty. In soccer we placed such scintillating luminaries 
as Messrs. Clarke. McArdle. DeMarest. Gobeil. Munroe. Anderson, and York. 
Later, when basketball assumed the throne of predominence. our ambassadors 
proved to be nearly all "the cheese". These were Messrs. McArdle, Williams. 



42 



193 2 THE FABRICATOR 

Clarke, York, Anderson. Lague, Gatonska, and Gobeil. Now about tennis. 
We aren't saying much just yet — but we bet a cookie the old gang will bring 
in a few more scalps! 

Not satisfied to leave well enough alone, the cocky, fighting, glamor-seek- 
ing spirit of this class came in view in intra-mural clashes. A "Notre Dame" 
-like eleven simply obliviated a freshman aggregation on the gridiron. Not 
to be so undone, these same freshmen attempted to engage with us in basket- 
ball — but under our tiger-like attack they crumpled up like so many match 

sticks in a gale of wind. Again they had nerve to challenge us, and again 

ha! ha! 

Class "Cheese-Bits" 

Elliot Anderson is the class "Lord Truesdale". He is the answer to any 
maiden's prayer. Just ask him. We wish him luck at North Carolina State. 
(P. S. He will need it. ) 

"Billy" Clarke still recalls the day he said, "I do"; but we recall the day 
he said, "Stoop over," behind an instructor's back and we wonder if he re- 
members. 

"Al" DeMarest has a weakness for red-heads. On top of this he has an 
uncanny ability to acquire apparatus. He should be a success in any lab. 

We all know Norman Gobeil who couldn't keep awake in Mr. Crompton's 
steam class during lecture unless he had smelling salts. Such manners. 

Now we have "Charlie" Hanson. This boy sure can mix chemistry and 
sodas. He can also fall asleep in any class; they are all the same to this lad. 

Cute little "Jimmie" Lague seems worried of late. Must be about M. F. 
How about it Jimmie? 

"Al" Malick's pet aversion was work, so the old lazy-bones overcame this 
difficulty by doubling up with Dave. It pays to have brains. 

Frank J. Mikus is the "shrimp" of the class. He might know his chem- 
istry, but I'm told he also toe dances beautifully. 

Shh!!! Quiet please! Let me introduce "Tubby" Munroe — the well 
known exponent of the higher sciences. Remember some of the startling theo- 
ries he exposed in steam class? Shh!! 

"Ray" Warner, the "what-a-man" of the class, is the latest vogue in how 
not to act. He talks the best fight in the whole school. Our sympathy sure 
does go to the girl he bores with his consistent presence. 

43 



THE FABRICATOR 1932 



"Ray" Williams always has his mouth open and his ears closed. He did 
a pal a favor once and his pal never forgave him. Remember? 

"Dave" York is the biggest man in our class. Biggest head, biggest feet, 
and biggest all around! 

Barney Cohen thinks he is Barney Oldfield. He is bright in school no 
doubt, but never trust him in a car because he has too many tricks — starts fires 
and turns turtle to pass the time away. 

Mr. Crompton's pet is Roger Gentilhomme. He always asks the cutest 
questions and says the duckiest things. Don't you know? 

Henry Gatonska has such fluent speech. I'm sure one of our dear instruc- 
tors remembers only too well. How about that day on the corner of County 
and Morgan, Mr. Gatonska? Was that nice? 

William F. McArdle is the class barometer. If he is going over the river, 
he is happy; if not, just keep your distance. The co-eds had to give up basket- 
ball games due to his language under the basket. (Hey, Bill, would you have 
Moxie or Hoxie?) 

Edward Sullivan is our machinist. If he can't make things work out, he 
takes some of his formula and everything looks rosy. 

John Frodyma — we really shouldn't say — but 'tis whispered he 
looketh longingly at diamond rings! Johnny, beware and take care. 

Louis Brody seems to be the original "Woman's Home Companion". 
"Les Petites" are most agreeable to his likes and ideals, but what about Anne? 
"She's different," says he. 

Last but not least is our fair co-ed Statia Strahoska. At all the games 
I'm sure you have heard Statia. If she only had Ray Williams' voice, she 
could be a" whole cheering section.

CLASS OF 1934 

THE first day of this school-year brought a large throng of young men, and 
we might add, a few young ladies to the Textile School. The majority 
of these seemed to find their old friends and side-kicks, but a certain minority 
seemed entirely strange, wearing that "when a feller needs a friend" expression 
on their visages. It is in this group that we are mostly interested, for they 
are the class of 1934, but at present, the freshmen. 

The first day was devoted to give and take; that is, giving of money and 
taking of a large assortment of slips, books, papers and general supplies. It 
was on this day that we formed our opinion of the school, its office and its 
faculty. Imagine our joy when counting noses, we observed the charming 
presence of several young ladies amongst our clan, later known as "the co-eds". 

A few weeks later we ran off our class election, with the result that 
"Freddie" Sylvia became President; Gerald Ferland, Vice-President; Irving 
Frost, Treasurer and Evelyn Smally, Secretary. 

We were then invited to attend the various socials sponsored by the frater- 
nities of the school. We observed and studied their ideals: weighed, on mental 
balances, their worthiness, and joined the ranks of the one our individual taste 
thought the best.

CLASS OF 1934 

WHEN the call for soccer candidates came, the school found the freshman 
class well represented with talent, and our representatives made a stand 
that speaks well for both the school and our class. These noble heroes were, 
"Bub" Cushman, "Tom" Gero, Frank Cleveland, John Ponte, "Stan" Yoze- 
fek and Frank Jasionek. 

On the basketball court we were represented by such luminaries as Cush- 
man, Hiller, Gero and Ponte. 

We likewise predict that an extra special good crop of Tennis and Baseball 
ardents will be found in our ranks when the time comes for their need. 

From the showing so far, the class of '34 can really promise that it will 
continue to carry on the good work of the preceding classes in both scholastic 
and athletic divisions, and not in any way but the good, affect the reputation 
the school has already built up.

Alumni Chapter 
New York City 



AFTER having lost ten of our members through graduation, Delta Chapter 
returned for the 1931-32 year with twelve worthy members, and hoping 
to start a banner year. And what a year it turned out to be! 

The third week in September ushered in "Rush Week", and many poor 
Freshmen found themselves suffering the consequences of pledging into the 
fraternity. Street parades, paddles, derbies, roller-skates, rubber boots, sing- 
ing! Who will ever forget those glorious (?) days? 

We held our annual dinner and smoker this year informally at the Fox 
Hill Gun Club, and a very enjoyable time was had by all. Active members, as 
well as teachers and alumni members, were present to consume a very invigor- 
ating dinner. 

52 



193 2 THE FABRICATOR 

After this affair was over, we found that we had eight new candidates 
pledged, these being George Axtell, Frederick Sylvia, Albert Silva, David Jud- 
son, Raymond Beauvais, Frank Cleveland, Gordan Flail, and Edward Galli- 
gan. Initiation followed in due course, and was enjoyed as much by the can- 
didates themselves as by the members. 

Delta Chapter started off the social season with a very successful semi- 
formal dance at the New Bedford Country Club on October 16th. The place 
was crowded, and everyone went home tired but satisfied. 

Athletics soon rolled around, and Delta Chapter was represented on the 
soccer field by "Billy" Beetham and Roy Amaral, both making their letter. 
"Billy" also was a star on last year's tennis team, and probably will be one of 
the main-stays this year. "Ed" Galligan was our bid for basketball, and he 
showed up very well. 

We were also well represented on the "Fabricator" staff. "Ray" Childs 
was elected Editor-in-chief; "Frank" Akin, Assistant Editor; "Phil" Morton, 
Business Manager; Adam Tomasik, Literary Editor; and Howard Dutton, 
Advertising Manager. Edgar Lachance was elected class Treasurer, and Francis 
Akin, Vice-President. 

Our new members also started things rolling in the Freshman class. 
"Freddie" Sylvia was elected President, and Gerald Ferland, Vice-president. 

We held a private dinner and dance at the Eagle Restaurant in Fall River 
on January 29th. No one will forget that night — ■ not even the girl friends. 

Soon after "Mid-years" we pledged one new candidate, William Quirk, 
who was initiated in due form. 

Another one of our great dances was held at the Country Club on April 
19th. It was even better than the first one, proving that D. K. is "all there" 
v/hen it comes to having good times. 

The Convention is to be held in Lowell this May, and some of our 
brothers are planning to attend. We hope it will be as successful as ours was 
last year, which we held at the Tabitha Inn in Fairhaven. We hope our 
brothers will be able to tell us all about it when they get back. 

Last May we held our Farewell party at Potter's, in Westport, and every- 
one had a great time dancing, etc., etc., (believe it or not) . We hope to have as 
good a one this year. Delta Chapter will lose ten members by graduation this 
year, but we hope we may carry on their fine work, and continue to uphold the 
fine traditions and the honor of the Delta Kappa Phi — the Oldest Textile 
School Fraternity in America. 

We wish these men, as well as all the other graduates, the best of luck 
and success in whatever they may undertake, and hope that they will not forget 
the many happy and profitable hours spent with D. K., when they join that 
certain group known as "Alumni".

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 

WHEN the New Bedford Textile School bell awoke from its deep dream of 
peace on that fateful day in September, in the year of our Lord, 1931, 
eighteen staunch and upright men, the remnants of the 1930 Phi Psi, answered 
the summons to resume the "school daze". They came from all directions, 
anxious to delve into the deep, dark unknown. Each and every one felt a loyal 
yearning to produce a banner year for Beta Chapter. 

It didn't take long, however, before all the hay-seed, cotton-lint, or just 
ordinary dirt was removed from one's person, depending on how or where 
the individual spent his vacation. Almost as soon, was the gang weary of 
listening to the lies each told the other about "experiences" of the summer be- 
fore. The routine, drab and colorless, set in with an ardor that felt almost 
irksome to many. 

However on the third week, when the fair Freshmen had hardly opened 
their innocent eyes and when they yet did not realize the splendors of our 
beauteous "campus", where the shady trees, the babbling brooks and the smell 
of new-mown grass appealed so much to one's senses, the grand occasion of 
"Rush Week" came about. Six fortunates were decreed worthy to the cause 
and were given bids to join the Phi Psi. A big feed and a pure, wholesome 
time was given them under the twinkling stars on the sands of Sconticut Neck 
on October the 5th. 

Then the next few days ushered in the "Suspension Period" or the time of 
penitence, when the chosen six candidates seemed to think that it rained every day 
when it didn't shower. We still can't decide which pledgee supplied the best 
brand of cigarettes for our disposal — tastes vary. It really doesn't seem 
possible that they will forget in a hurry several cold and dark nights when they 
would much rather stand up than sit down (for obvious reasons) ; when an 
officer of the law decided that they were attracting too large a following on the 
bank window-seat; when they were told plainly and unceremoniously that from 



56 



19 3 2 



THE FABRICATOR 



a certain, lonely spot in the far off extremities of the country was where they 
were to enact the "hiking test". 

Finally the third degree was administered in collaboration with Delta 
Chapter of Fall River, the ceremony being held in New Bedford. After the 
completion of the anxious moments, much food was consumed and still more 
entertainment enjoyed at the King Philip Inn. 

The annual public dance was held at the Country Club on November 
the 14th, and as usual, a good time was had by all present. 

Phi Psi men played an important part in athletics. The soccer team which 
enjoyed a very successful season, had on its roster the following men: Cap- 
tain Dubiel, Hotte, Clarke, McArdle, DeMarest, Gobeil, Anderson, Munroe, 
Cushman and York. The basketball team claimed the following brothers: 
Clarke, DeMarest, McArdle, Cushman, Williams, York, Gobeil, Anderson, 
Munroe and Manager Dubiel. The baseball team with Munroe as its manager 
will undoubtedly call many Phi Psi men to its folds as will also the Tennis 
team with Anderson as its manager, and an alumni, Brother Cook, as its coach. 

With the coming of the summer months again, and our final fraternity 
dance in view, five of our beloved brothers will leave the active rank and join 
the Alumni branch. It is to these men that the Phi Psi wishes extra luck and 
sincerely hopes that they may continue to carry the banner of the fraternity 
with all its ideals along with them to the outside. Brothers — Good Fortune!

William Kroudvird Councillor 

David Kroudvird Exchequer 

Max Rothkop Vice Councillor 

Albert Malick Scribe 

Barney Cohen Corr. Scribe 

Louis Brody Warden 

The year as usual for SIGMA PHI TAU, was very successful both socially 
and financially. 

The "smoker," initiation, and banquet were again carried out in con- 
junction with Gamma Chapter of Fall River, at Fall River. 

Thanksgiving Day a banquet was given by the boys in honor of the alum- 
ni men who were back home for the holiday. 

The annual dance of the Fraternity held every February 22nd at Fall 
River again proved to be the largest and best affair of the year. Alumni men 
from Philadelphia, New York, New Bedford, and Fall River were present in 
unusually large numbers. However, regardless of the large crowd present, every 
person was certainly well satisfied and happy when 4 A. M. rolled around. 
Beautiful favors with Sigma Phi Tau engraved on them, were given to all 
the girls. 

March 26-27th. The Convention was held this year in New York at 
Savoy-Plaza and many brothers from the Chapter attended. 

With the annual graduation, three men will drop from the active enroll- 
ment to join the ever increasing active alumni. This therefore leaves again three 
men active in school to carry on the good traditions of SIGMA PHI TAU. 

Good luck to All the Boys of '32 and Everyone. 

Sigma Phi Tau.

THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 
Chemistry Society 

r pHE Chemistry Club, sponsored by the Senior Chemistry class, again came in 
1 evidence after an elapse of a few silent, or almost so, years. 

This noble organization, with the direct purpose of giving chemistry 
students a chance to spread out their scope of chemical knowledge beyond 
just the field of Textiles, welcomes into its roll-call any student who may deem 
it worth while. 

The executive council is comprised of: George Hotte, President; John 
Munroe, Jr., Vice-President; Mark Dubiel, Treasurer; Frank Mikus, Secretary. 

The lectures given are formulated, for the biggest part, by the students 
themselves. The benefit is therefore two-fold; the first, whereby the speaker 
gains experience in research and also in the art of public speaking; the second 
whereby the rest of the body gains the knowledge provided by the lecture. 

An elaborate program or schedule was composed by the Executive Council, 
laying out the series of lectures to cover the whole year. So far, success was 
enjoyed to the limit. This pleasure is directly responsible to the fact that 
the lecturers really put everything that they had to their work.

THE PROGRAM FOR THE YEAR 

"Preservation of Foods" Howard O. Dutton 

"Manufacture and Treatment of Watch Oils" Edward Laffcrty 

"Manufacture of Synthetic Flavors and Perfumes" Raymond Childs 

"Economics of Sulphur" Phillips Morton 

"Colloids" A. Theodore Tomasik 

"Smokeless Gun Powder" Max Rothkop 

Much credit is due to Mr. Frederick Busby for the work and time-sacrifice 
he has given the Club. It is through his efforts that this club really exists, 
not only as a name but as an organ of high value and ideals. It is likewise 
through his efforts that the membership this year has yet to meet its level. 

We feel that if we can but scratch the surface of Knowledge or complete 
the tiniest arc in the circle of Science, — our work shall not be in V.ain!

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES 

THE first big social event of the season was the Dance Party of the Delta 
Kappa Phi Fraternity held October 16th at the New Bedford Country 
Club. The Patron and Patroness for this successful dance were Mr. Frank 
Holden and Miss Nellie Holden. A large gathering crowded the clubhouse, 
and enjoyed dancing to wonderful music. 

The Phi Psi Fraternity held a similar dance at the Country Club on No- 
vember 14th. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Gourley were Patron and Patroness for 
this successful event, and a very enthusiastic crowd attended. 

The first dance of the Senior Class was held in the school gymnasium on 
December 2nd. A large crowd danced beneath beautiful decorations of red and 
white, and the Patrons and Patronesses were Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Gourley 
and Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Holt. This affair turned out to be both a social 
and financial success. George Hotte was chairman of the committee. 

The Textile School Alumni Association, headed by John Fawcett '28, 
held a basketball game and dance in the gymnasium December 26th. Many 
Alumni members from out-of-town were present, as well as a large number 
of students. 

The Alumni Association also held a supper and entertainment at the Gulf 
Hill Parlors on February 20th. Many alumni were present to hear a very in- 
teresting talk by Senator L. Theodore Woolfenden. 

The second dance of the Senior Class was held April 6th in the gymnasium, 
and it turned out to be another great success. Mr. and Mrs. John Fawcett 
were Patron and Patroness, while our own George Hotte and his orchestra sup- 
plied the tantalizing music. 

The Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity held another Dance Party at the New 
Bedford Country Club on April 19th. Everyone present voted this dance a 
great success in every way, and hope that they will sponsor another affair in 
the very near future. 

The social season of the New Bedford Textile School is rapidly coming 
to a close. Fraternity Farewell parties are being arranged for, and soon the 
"grads" will pass on into the world, hoping, however, to some-day come back 
and enjoy many hours of pleasure as they did in their days at dear old "Tech".

TEAM HARMONY 

ATHLETIC individualism is a malignant disease commonly acquired by 
students and which has been more fatal to sports than any other single 
malady. Observation proves that spirited athletic reportings together with its 
descriptions of the part played by the local star is a common source of this 
malignancy. This sort of thing is confidently believed to impart an ex- 
hilaration to the sports follower which will heighten the joys of victory and 
ease the pangs of defeat. However, what may appear logical in theory does 
not justify itself in practise. 

Players are too often tempted to try for individual glory even at the ex- 
pense of the entire team. Too many games are lost when a team, working as 
a smooth machine, is broken up when an individual disregards his team-mate's 
support, that he may score the winning point of the contest. No game can be 
won without some sort of team harmony. As an illustration, let us review the 
big year of the "Four Horsemen" backfield at Notre Dame, where the late 
Knute Rockne had an early season game with a small college eleven. The 
Four Horsemen ran wild as usual. Suddenly Rockne removed his entire line 
and sent in substitutions. The peerless backfield promptly was held for 
downs, by the little school. 

"That", said Rockne to his star running backs, "was just to show all of 
ycu how far you would get if you didn't have seven mules in front of you."

THE SOCCER TEAM 

THE New Bedford Textile soccer team kept up the "rep" maintained by the 
past teams when the squad enjoyed a most successful season. Although 
the Tech soccerites met stiff opposition this year in fulfilling the schedule ar- 
ranged by Manager Howard O. Dutton, the squad came out on the long end, 
with a win column of six and a loss of one. Such teams as Yale Junior Var- 
sity, Harvard Junior Varsity, Fitchburg Normal, Vocational, Worcester Poly- 
technical and Durfee Textile were the victims of the Textile booters. Un- 
fortunately the lone defeat came at the hands of an aggressive Vocational 
eleven which marred a perfect season. The Tech crew amassed a total of 26 
counters to its opponent's 9 for the season. 

To Coach Beardsworth, who knows all the finer points of the game, 
should go the "congrats". His work was the mainstay of the team's success, 
while his constant driving at team harmony and the do-or-die spirit brought out 
an eleven with color when out on the playing field. 

The squad carried no outstanding ace; each member deserving credit for 
the fine showing of the season. The team was made up of different classmen, 
these being Capt. Dubiel, George Hotte, William McArdle, Alfred DeMarest, 
Norman Gobeil, Stanley Yozefek, William Beetham, Winston Cushman, Frank 
Cleveland, William Clarke, John Ponte, "Jack" Broadmeadow, Elliott Ander- 
son, John Munroe, Roy Amaral, Henry Gero, and Frank Jasionek. The team 
should again be invincible in the coming year due to the fact that only Capt. 
Dubiel, George Hotte, "Jack" Broadmeadow, William Beetham and Elliott An- 
derson are lost through graduation.

N. B. T. S. — WORCESTER POLYTECHNICAL 

The New Bedford Textile soccer team scored its first victory when they 
defeated a fast Worcester Polytech soccer team in a contest that required two 
overtime periods. The score was 4-2, and was played at Worcester. However, 
the victory cost us the services of George Hotte, who developed a trick knee, and 
had to be carried from the playing pitch. The first tally was credited to 
Clarke, who headed a pass from Ponte into the corner of the net. The one to 
nothing lead held by the Tech men in the first half was short lived in the sec- 
ond period, when the successive drives sponsored by the opposition, put them 
into the lead by a two to one count. Evading the backs, Cleveland hooked 
one into the net to even the score at two all, just before the finish, to put the 
game into overtime periods. In the extra ten minutes Capt. Dubiel sneaked in 
two tallies to "bring home the bacon". Hotte and Yozefek were strong at 
the defense with Cleveland and Broadmeadow active at the offense. 

N. B. T. S. — FITCHBURG NORMAL 

Fitchburg Normal was the under-dog in Tech's first home game played 
at Buttonwood, when the Millmen snatched the odd goal of the five scored in 
the contest. The game was carried on at a fast clip and was interesting to watch. 
Capt. Dubiel scored after twenty minutes of play on a pass from Cushman. 
Both goalies then put on a display of spectacular stops, before Kearns beat 
McArdle to tie-up the game at the half. In the second half, Cushman tallied 
from outside of the penalty area, followed by another from the educated toe 
of Capt. Dubiel. Just before the finish, Hammond put one out of the reach 
of McArdle to end the scoring. The opposition had difficulty in breaking 
through the defense put up by Gobeil and DeMarest; while Cleveland and 
Clarke showed up well at the forward line. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

Tech scored its third straight game when it administered the first defeat 
the clever Vocational soccerites tasted in its two soccer seasons. The game was 
played at Buttonwood and the verdict stood at Tech 2 — Vocational 0. The 
entire Tech team put on a passing attack which was interesting to watch and 
which was essential in obtaining the victory. Cleveland accounted for the 
first goal in the first period, while Capt. Dubiel sunk the second goal in the sec- 
ond half. Repeated attacks made by the Vocational forwards did not gain them 
anything, due to the fact that McArdle deflected drive after drive. Gobeil and 
Yozefek also formed a fine defense for the Tech team, while Ponte and Cush- 
man fared well in Tech's barrage of shots popped at the Vocational citadel.

N. B. T. S. — YALE JUNIOR VARSITY 

The New Bedford Textile soccer squad travelled to New Haven to play the 
Yale Junior Varsity. The Victory was Tech's fourth straight, and the score was 
4-2. However, because of the freezing weather and high wind, the contest 
was dull and uninteresting in spots. Cleveland opened up the scoring for 
Tech, while Beetham added another from the penalty mark. On two break- 
aways Campbell netted two goals for Yale and the half ended at two all. With 
the wind settling down, team-work on the part of the forward line opened up a 
shot for Cleveland, who made his shot good. The Yale men tried attack 
upon attack on the Tech goal but the nearest they got to a score was the 
knocking-out of McArdle, who played a stellar game throughout. Capt. 
Dubiel converted a pass from Broadmeadow into a score to put the game on 
ice. Clarke and Beetham put on a strong defense for Textile. 

N. B. T. S. — HARVARD JUNIOR VARSITY 

The New Bedford Textile eleven continued on to victory when they 
journeyed to Boston to trounce the Harvard Junior Varsity to the tune of 5-0. 
The game was a one-sided affair. The college kickers tried hard in the final 
period to break through the stonewall defense put on by Gobeil and DeMarest, 
but lacked both technique and experience. Capt. Dubiel started the pasting 
by dribbling through the Harvard defense and polishing off the drive with the 
goalie picking the sphere out of the corner of the net. Cleveland then knotted 
another for Tech, and Beetham found the net from the penalty mark just at 
the close of the second period. Amaral's entrance into the game in the next 
period strengthened the offense considerably and was instrumental in the 
fourth tally of the day by Capt. Dubiel. Amaral sunk the fifth goal when he 
broke through during a scrimmage in front of the Harvard goal and hooked 
in the prettiest shot of the afternoon. 

N. B. T. S. — DURFEE TEXTILE 

Tech marched on to its sixth victory when it administered a 7-1 trounc- 
ing to its big rivals, the Durfee millmen, at Buttonwood. The game was 
loosely played and uninteresting, with Tech having the play under its control 
during the entire 70 minutes of play. Cushman opened the scoring after five 
minutes of playing, following a scrimmage in front of the Durfee goal. Jas- 
ionek helped the score along by beating Pickering twice in the first quarter. 
Tech played Durfee off of its feet in the second quarter with Cleveland counting 
for one and Capt. Dubiel performing the hat trick. Tech let up in the last 
two period with the play more evenly matched. Harrison was the best for the 

69 



THE FABRICATOR 1932 

losers, making a play for an opening every time he got possession of the ball. 
Nannery made good the lone score when he put through a penalty kick. 
Clarke and Beetham played a strong game at halfback. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

The New Bedford Textile soccer team met its first defeat of the season 
at the hands of Vocational by the close score of 2-1 at Battery Park. The 
game was played at a fast clip and, at times, a little beyond the control of the 
official. The first score came shortly after the opening when Capt. Dubiel of 
Tech evaded Sojka and Magasz and drove into the corner of the rigging, — a 
slow one which had Merrick beaten. Vocational then put on a stout defense 
which would not give way to the repeated attacks attempted by the Tech crew. 
In the meantime the Vocational forwards came back to tie up the score. The 
shot made by Monty gave McArdle no chance. During a confusion near the 
Tech citadel, Beetham accidentally scored, to place Vocational in the lead. Al- 
though Tech received a chance to even the score, Beetham failed on a penalty 
shot when he hit the crossbar, and Sojka cleared. The game ended with the 
ball in Vocational's territory. McArdle played his strong game between the 
uprights, and, although he was put out of commission in the first half, came 
back to finish strong.

THE BASKETBALL TEAM 

BASKETBALL found a large group out for the team and after a few weeks of 
hard workouts the following were left after the cut: Capt. John Gon- 
salves, Winston Cushman, William Clarke, William McArdle, Raymond Wil- 
liams, Norman Gobeil, Alfred DeMarest, David York, Elliott Anderson, Henry 
Gero, Edward Galligan, John Ponte, Joseph Crowley and Raymond Hiller. 
Under the watchful eyes of Coach Szulick, the Tech team finished a hard 
schedule arranged by Mark T. Dubiel just under the .500 mark. 

Such opposition as Lowell Textile, Dean Academy, Becker College, Bry- 
ant Stratton, Rhode Island College of Education, Durfee Textile, Vocational, 
U. S. Naval Training Station, and the Providence College Junior Varsity 
were met. 

Although Textile determinedly endeavored to outdo their opponents in 
total goal scoring, they were, in the end, vanquished to the sum of 443 to 411. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 

The New Bedford Textile basketeers opened their basketball season at 
the Maxfield St. gym where they set back the Rhode Island College of Education 
five by a 33-12 score. The Millmen out-played the visitors in all departments 



71 



THE FABRICATOR 1932 

of the game. The Tech men put on a fine display of team pass work to 
take a commanding lead at the first quarter. By the end of the half, the home 
court team was far in the lead. The second half found the second-stringers 
in the contest holding their own. Cushman and McArdle shared the scoring 
honors with 10 points apiece, while Scott was the best for the college five with 
five points. 

N. B. T. S. — LOWELL TEXTILE 

Journeying to Lowell, the Tech squad returned home on the short end of 
a 49-20 score. The Lowell Textile quintet encountered with a smooth passing 
game that New Bedford Textile could not break. The Tech team was in there 
every minute of the game but could not penetrate the opponent's scoring ter- 
ritory. Clarke was the Tech ace with 7 points while Capt. Gonsalves, besides 
playing a fine defensive. g3me, tallied 5 points. Savard, playing center for 
Lowell Textile, was the outstanding player on the floor putting in 20 points. 

N. B. T. S. — BRYANT-STRATTON 

New Bedford Textile basketball five received its second defeat of the year 
when it travelled to Providence and opposed the Bryant-Stratton business five. 
The Tech team were the victims of many raw deals during the contest or other- 
wise the result of the game might have been different. The score was 26-18. 
The first half found Tech minus the services of Clarke and McArdle, who 
were put out via the personal foul route. Capt. Gonsalves playing his usual 
strong game at guard tallied 9 points while Collison was the best for the 
winners with 8. 

N. B. T. S. — BECKER COLLEGE 

A hard-fighting New Bedford Textile School basketball aggregation went 
down to defeat at the hands of the Becker college quintet in a slashing game 
that could have gone either way right up to the final whistle. McArdle and 
Clarke, the Whaling city forwards, starred for the losers, contributing 17 points 
of the 30 rolled up by them. Tech got away to a poor start, apparently because 
of their strangeness to the home team gym. However, Tech soon hit its stride 
and at the end of the first period held a 10-9 point lead. The Becker five got 
its passing game functioning in the second quarter and, at the half, had taken a 
one point lead. In the last quarter the game see-sawed back and forth but the 
superior passing of the businessmen built their lead up to five points. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

Vocational came from behind to pin a 28-26 defeat on Textile at the Tex- 
tile gym. The contest was played at a fast clip with Textile leading at the 
end of the period by a 8-3 score. At the close of the second period, the score 

72 



1932 THE FABRICATOR 

stood 16-9 in favor of Textile, and still leading at the third quarter by a 19-17 
score. In the final canto, Vocational forged ahead with Martin scoring the 
winning basket. Grace at right forward for Vocational was the hardest 
worker on the floor scoring 10 points while Gero starred for Textile with 8 
points. Capt. Gonsalves and DeMarest played their usual strong game at the 
guard positions. The Vocational Scrubs trounced the Tech Junior Varsity to 
the tune of 28-10. 

N. B. T. S. — R. I. COLLEGE OF EDUCATION 

New Bedford Textile Basketball quintet broke into the winning column 
when they defeated the Rhode Island College of Education floor team at Prov- 
idence for the second time in the season. The score was 27-23 with the contest 
in doubt until the final whistle. Cushman opened the scoring for Textile 
with McCanna tieing it up in the next minute. The quarter ended with the 
home team ahead 7-4. Fast playing by McCanna and Scott kept the college 
five ahead at the half by a 13-8 score. In the third period, McArdle of Tech, 
ran wild to even the score at 1 7 all. The play travelled back and forth, and 
with less than a minute to go, Capt. Gonsalves and McArdle scored a basket 
apiece to sew the game up. For Textile, McArdle at forward starred with 12 
points, while Capt. Gonsalves played a strong game at guard. McCanna 
featured for the losers with 1 1 points. 

N. B. T. S. — DURFEE TEXTILE 

Tech won its third game at the expense of Durfee Textile at Fall River. 
Perfect understanding between Cushman and McArdle placed New Bdford 
Textile ahead at the first quarter 1 1-8. At the half the score was 22-16 in favor 
of New Bedford. At this point Gero entered the affair to tally three successive 
shots and aided by Cushman's long shots the third period ended with Tech 
ahead by a score of 34-22. The final score was 44-28. Cushman was the 
ace of the night with 1 6 points, while McKindley starred for the losers with 
12. Williams showed up well at guard. The New Bedford Junior Varsity 
were defeated by the Durfee Scrubs by the close score of 30-24. 

N. B. T. S. — U. S. N. T. S. 

Another defeat was suffered by New Bedford Textile when they motored 
by car to Newport to wind up on the short end of a 38-28 score. The absence 
of Cushman at center was felt by Textile, which failed to click during the entire 
fray. Capt. Gonsalves, playing the left guard position, was the best for Textile, 
scoring 10 points. Ferraro was the big gun for the U. S. Naval Training Sta- 
tion basketball team, tallying 10 points also.

N. B. T. S. — DEAN ACADEMY 

Dean Academy proved too strong for New Bedford Textile Basketball 
floor team when they pinned a 51-36 score on them. Tech started rather slowly, 
but in the latter stages of the contest began to assert themselves. However the 
big lead piled up by the academy boys was too large an obstacle to surmount. 
Bottlicelli featured for the winners with 1 5 counters' while the shooting honors 
for New Bedford were shared between Clarke and Capt. Gonsalves who tallied 
1 1 points apiece. 

N. B. T. S. — BRYANT-STRATTON 

Tech again entered the win column when they defeated the Bryant- 
Stratton five in a fast and interesting game that ended with a 25-23 score. The 
first period found the business quintet ahead by a 7-5 lead. At this stage of 
the game Collison unleashed a barrage netting three fields and two fouls with 
the half terminating with Bryant-Stratton, 18 — Tech, 10. Tech out-scored 
the visitors in the third quarter, but were still on the short end by five points. 
With the game almost at a close, Crowley dribbled through to sink the winning 
tally. Clarke starred for New Bedford with 8 points, while Collison scored 
10 for the under-dogs. 

N B. T. S. — BECKER COLLEGE 

The Textile basketeers trimmed the Becker business court team at the 
Textile gym by a 37-28 score. Tech displayed its best passing performance 
of the season. Clarke was the hardest worker on the floor, garnering 15 points 
for his evening's work. Behind at the quarter, Capt. Gonsalves and Cushman 
uncorked an offense that swept the visitors off of their feet, to put Tech ahead 
18-16. The insertion of York at center enabled the team to stay ahead at the 
third period 28-20. Becker encountered much difficulty in uncovering an attack 
because of its inability to obtain the tap at center. Capt. Ellsworth starred 
for the losers, while every man was instrumental in gaining the victory for Tech. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

Vocational defeated the Millmen for the second time by a 42-32 score. 
Cebula was the star for Vocational with 1 7 points, while Textile carried no 
star — the points being evenly divided. Tech was out pointed in the first three 
periods, but had Vocational on the run in the final quarter, when Janis was re- 
moved on four fouls. A man to man defense attempted by Textile in the wan- 
ing minutes of the game, ran the opposition ragged but the splurge was put on 
too late to turn the tide. The Vocational Scrubs overcame the Textile Junior 
Varsity by the large score of 41-16. Russell starred for Vocational with 19 
points while Crowley tallied five for Tech.

The Tech hoopsters went out of their class to be defeated by the Prov-

game was uninteresting and dull to watch. Barbarito was the big shot for the 
home-town team, scoring 16 points from all corners of the field. Every con- 
centrated drive attempted by New Bedford Textile was turned back by the 
college five and they in turn instituted one to forge ahead and capture the game. 
Cushman was the best for the losers with 9 points.

The New Bedford Textile Basketball team finished its schedule with a

passing, in the first half, put them in the lead by a 21-2 score. Conditions 
changed in the final two cantos, with the visitors finding themselves and putting 
the Textilians on the defense, with Brown doing all the damage for the Fall 
Riverites. In the final spurt, the visitors tried shots from all sections of the 
floor but could not locate the net often enough to win. Brown garnered 10 
points for the losers. In the preliminary the Tech Junior Varsity defeated the 
Durfee Seconds by a 22-19 score.

The Bucksport's trip was a grand ride — until they got wise to Dubiel. 

We know that Coach Szulick teaches the fundamentals of the game, but

Why is it that Old Man Sunshine slipped up on us on our various trips? 

Munroe, big newspaper reporter, should give "Bossy" Gillis a rub when it

Who remembers the Coach and player Szulick? 

Ponte may know the suburbs of Boston but he sure doesn't know his

'Tis said that the Dean trip was beneficial to the teeth of several of the 
players of the team. 

Lucky for some of the members of the squad and Coach Szulick that 
"Yorkie" was in on the Dean trip, or they might have been still thumbing 
their way home. 

'Tis a pity that Gobeil left his water-wings at home or he might not have 
had to spend the night wading in two feet of water in the pool at Newport. 
How was the water Gobeil? 

It seems that we have quite a few fair rooters on the trips. Or, is it that 
some members of the squad are that way about it? Too bad, they were good 
fellows. 

Who suggested playing the game of Hearts at 2 A. M.? 

Is it true that Capt. Gonsalves and Coach Szulick have a yen for Blue

Imagine Galligan looking for a certain joint in the middle of the night

Can it be possible that Gero is corresponding with the waitress at Wor-

Where did Capt. Gonsalves get the refreshments on the Worcester trip?

TENNIS TEAM 

THE New Bedford Textile School tennis team had for its 1931 repre- 
sentatives Cook, Wright, Pierce, Ferguson, Poremba, Gardner, Potel and 
the able Damon for manager. The team was a well balanced outfit, but man- 
aged to win only three of the six scheduled games. Cook was by far the out- 
standing player; however, being strongly supported by Wright and Pierce. 
Teams of Vocational, Fairhaven High, Fall River Tennis Club and Harvard 
Junior Varsity comprised the Textile opponents. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

A snappy start gave the Textonions a 6 to drubbing over the Vocs.

N. B. T. S. — FAIRHAVEN HIGH 

First taste of defeat was given to the Techs by a strong Fairhaven High 
outfit. Andrews of Fairhaven featured throughout the sets, outclassing the 
opponents that he met. The score finally read 4 to 3, Textile being on the 
short end. 

N. B. T. S. — HARVARD JUNIOR VARSITY 

Travelling to Jarvis field, Cambridge, Textile was easily swamped 6 to 1. 
Cook and Ferguson saved the day in their doubles match in retaining a 1 point 
for Alma Mater. 

N. B. T. S. — VOCATIONAL 

Victory again faced New Bedford Tech resulting in a 5 to 1 margin. A 
stubborn fight was shown by Vocational but Textile was not to be outdone. 

N. B. T. S. — FAIRHAVEN HIGH 

Again Fairhaven High showed superior netmen by defeating the locals 
by a corresponding score of the previous meeting. Although the match was on 
edge throughout, Fairhaven came ahead in the final doubles. 

Tennis will continue at the school this year. "Bridge/water" Anderson 
has charge of arranging games. Cook, past member of the Textile squad, ex-

Berkman : Gee, Tommy, you smell of 
tobacco. 

Broady: Well, that's better than his 
usual odor. 



"Bill is so original. He says things to 
me that I have never heard before." 

"What? Has he asked you to marry 
him?" 



Sophie: So you don't like John? 

Father: No. He appears capable of noth- 
ing. 

Sophie: Well, what objection have you 
to Mark? 

Father: Oh, he's worse than John. He 

strikes me as being capable of anything. 



Lindberg: The closer a man gets to 
Nature, the happier he is. 

Lachance: That's not what you said 
yesterday when you slipped on the banana 
peel. 



Amaral: May I have the last dance with 



you : 



Stashia : You've just had it. 



The Mrs. : Do you know that you talk 
in your sleep? 

Mr. : Do you begrudge me those few 
words? 



Mary: I hear you had a blowout at your 
house last night? 

Perry: No, that was just a report. 



Judge: Had you complete command of 
yourself at the time? 

Berkman: No, sir; my wife was with 
me. 



Akin: May I join you? 
Ruth: Do I look disjointed? 



Birth of a Beautiful Friendship. 

"I'll be frank with you," said Lafferty 
when the embrace was over. "You're not 
the first girl I ever kissed." 

"I'll be equally frank with you" an- 
swered Anne. "You've got a lot to learn." 



New Slant in Geology 
"What started the Grand Canyon?" 
"Kroudvird lost a penny in a ditch. 



Mr. Broadmeadow: — Crossley, did you 
have the car out last night? 

"Why — yes, dad, I took some of the 
boys for a run-around." 

"Well, tell them I've found two of their 
lipsticks!" 



A Nod's as Good as a Wink 
Evelyn: — Did you give Bill any op- 
portunities to propose? 

Dot: — ■ Yes, but goodness, I couldn't 
tell him they were opportunities, could I? 



Proofs of Servitude 
Station Sergeant: — Are you married? 
Berkman (just arrested) : — No, sir. 
Officer: — ■ He's a liar. Sergeant. When 
we searched him we found in his pockets 
a clipped recipe for curing croupe, a sample 
of silk, and two unposted letters in a wo- 
man's handwriting a week old. 



McDarle: — I got a real kick out of 
kissing Rildmed last night. 

Darke: — Any more than usual? 
McDarle: — Yea, the old man caught me. 



Mr. Busby: — Now, in this experiment 
we will use fresh starch paste. 

Kroudvird Brothers: — Do you mean the 
starch paste we let stand a week? 



Dave Kroudvird to Max Rothkop (at the 
senior dance) : — May I have the next dance, 
Max? 

Max: — What do you want to dance 
with me, for? 



Mr. Acomb: — (to the general boys). 
Do you know that Amaral is the most im- 
portant man of the class? 

Lachance: — How's that, Mr. Acomb? 
Mr. Acomb: — It's like this; Amaral 
talks so loud when he's asleep that he keeps 
the rest of you fellows awake. 



A husband is a bachelor who couldn't

CHEMICAL NATURE OF WOMEN 

This element called women is a member of the human family and it has 

been assigned the chemical symbol of Wo. The accepted atomic weight is 

120, although a number of isotopes exist having weights ranging from 95 
to 400. 

Occurrence: — It is abundant in nature; both free and combined, usually 
associated with man. That found in U. S. is preferred. 

Physical Properties: — A number of allotropic forms have been observed. 
Their density, transparency, hardness, color, boiling and melting points vary 
within wide limits. The color exhibited by many specimens is a surface phen- 
omenon and is usually due to a closely adhering powder. The boiling point 
for some varieties is quite low, while others are likely to freeze at any moment. 
All varieties melt under proper treatment. They vary from bitter to sweet 
depending upon environment and manipulation. 

Chemical Properties: — Absorbs seemingly unlimited quantities of ex- 
pensive food. Many naturally occurring specimens of Wo are highly magnetic 
and their ionic migrations varly widely. All varieties exhibit an extra-ordinary 
affinity for silver, gold and platinum, also for precious stones both in the chain 
and ring structure. The valence towards these elements is high, and the resi- 
dual valence is never satisfied. Many stable and unstable unions have been 
known — the latter described in the daily press. Some varieties being highly 
explosive are very dangerous in inexperienced hands, and they tend to explode 
spontaneously when left alone temporarily by man. The application of press- 
ure on different specimens of Wo produces a variety of results. 

Uses: — Highly ornamental. Wide application in the arts and domestic 
sciences. Acts as a positive or negative catalyst in the production of fever, as 
the case may be. Useful as a tonic in the alleviation of sickness, low spirits, 
etc. Equalizes the distribution of wealth. Is probably the most powerful 
(income) reducing agent known. 



It happened recently that Lafferty was very sick and the physicians on the 
almost hopeless case prescribed a blood transfusion, so a thorough search was 
made to find the most perfect specimen of manhood whose blood would match 
that of Lafferty's. He was found in the shape of a big Polack, named Tomasik, 
and here's what happened: 

"Tomasik," said one of the physicians, "will you give some of your 
blood to Lafferty?" 

"To H — with Lafferty", replied Tomasik. 

"We'll pay you well" said the doctor. 

"Alright," said Tomasik, and gladly agreed. 

Preparations were completed and a wee shot of Tomasik's blood was 
given to Lafferty; he wriggled his toes. Another injection was made and Laf- 
ferty opened his eyes. After a full pint of Tomasik's blood was injected, 

Lafferty sat up on the operating table, looked around and shouted "To H 

with Lafferty."

THE TEXTILE GOOSE 

Through previous years, accounts of the Textile Goose have been ex- 
traordinarily exaggerated and misrepresented. In past manuscripts, dating 
from 1928 onward, conceptions of this living being has been varied, so that 
even the brighter and more highly educated persons, not having personally met 
the Goose, should be informed, in clearer verse, about the culture, qualifications 
and general conditions pertaining to this existing creature. 

To make the situation comprehensive, past authors have said that the 
Goose was a pleasant sensation but as we read further, we find co-writers des- 
cribing the same, call it a malicious animal and really visualize before the reader 
that "on first offense the retaliating shock is most paralyzing and excruciating". 
Some, on the other hand, very foolishly endeavor to exhibit the Goose as a 
bird with feathers, neck and a brown tail. 

It must be said that a plain description of the Goose is not an easy under- 
taking. Correctly speaking, the habit has lived since the creation of man and will 
live to eternity. Although man, in general, has not been gifted with this most 
unusual subject, Textile graduates are complete and exceedingly masters of the 
art. Assuring you that the Goose is actually alive, an endeavor will be made to 
show how an interview occurs. 

First connections are real thrillers, but as the acquaintance is broadened, 
further expectations are soon realized. It then becomes more or less of a nui- 
sance; however, a practical joke to the administrator, but again rare occasions 
arise where its use is entirely prohibited. Without a doubt, once recognized, 
it will never be forgotten. 

Thousands upon thousands of words could not do justice to the trans- 
gression of like type. References are then favorable and to this, Mark (Sophie) 
Dubiel is most suitable. His applied science may at first terrify, but in spite of 
the fact, one regains consciousness shouting, "Viva la Goose". 



Dutton: — Mr. Brooks, the graduating 
class would like you and your wife to act 
as patron and patroness at our dance. 

Mr. Brooks : — What ! ? ! ? ! ■ — and cause 
jealousy in the harem. 



Our class singer: — Was my "Slumber 
Song" effective? 

Chorus: — Very. We went to sleep after 
the first verse. 



Dot: — Do you know George proposed 
to me last night? 

Milly : — Yes? Doesn't he do it beau- 
tifully. 



Graduate (just leaving) : ■ — Good-bye. 
I'm indebted to you for all I know. 

Mr. Busby: — Don't mention such a 
trifle. 



Getting the Low-down. 

Place — Heard 1 yard from the co-ed 
chatter-box. 

"I just saw Evelyn down-town with a 
new boy friend. The first she's been out 
with since her illness." 

"Yes, she's picking up again." 



Suggested yell for ULTRA VIOLET 
college — Ray, Ray. Ray. Ray.

TEXTILE - WAY 
By naughty little Georgie Porgie 



This column has worried so, 
The many whom I know, 
That I often paced to and fro. 
Whether to print this, yes or no. 

But here it is: — 



We wanted Lafferty for president and we 
got him. What a man, what a man!!! 
This Irishman is a smart fella, oh yes, even 
the ring salesman knows that. Knows how 
to do business to a perfection. All loss, no 
gain. The boy has a fancy for the name 
Anne. If in any doubt, we'll use more pri- 
vacy and talk on Anne S. and Anne F. Come 
see me at my office. 



Now here's Akin. Know him? No! 
Can't print a word about him. See Alma 
for references. 



Lachance. leap year's prize winner. Don't 
drink, swear or chew. Girls — grab while 
the grabbing is good. 



To dear "Sherman" and handsome "Wil- 
gus" never satisfied; always finding loop- 
holes. "Criticism is less realized to those who 
at least try." 



A column would never be complete with- 
out mention of the fairer sex. Let's title 
this. "You Wonder". 

These most lovable co-eds always seem to 
be occupied after basket-ball games. Pri- 
vate investigation has taught a lot. How- 
ever, you must come over and lighten your 
way through the dark. 



Well, well, the big moment is here. Who? 
You guess. Why it's Dutton. A short while 
ago a Lydia Pinkham booklet under the 
heading of "Private Text Book" was re- 
ceived at the school under the name of Mrs. 
Ober Dutton. What runs in one's mind but 
Betty, the hope of a nation. 



"I have no time to devote out of school 
hours for advertisement-getting, but I have 
plenty of time in school hours," spake the 
man. May I introduce Mr. Rothkop, the 
big man, robust, healthy, and well-fed; by 
his appearance. Always been amazed by the 
fact that he was baptized "Pussy". 



My "Spanish woman" is certainly pas- 
sionate: — Broadmeadow raves on! 

Well, Spanish onions get the best of any- 
one, too.

THE FABRICATOR 



Childs, with Dutton as a pupil, has re- 
vived the Hula Hula dance. He also takes 
a great deal of interest in Jenny Lind St., 
and likes to take long walks at night. We 
wonder why? 



Phil Morton, quiet, respectable — blah! 
Knows all the nooks and what have you. 



Flowers of the sophomore class: — Clarke, 
McArdle, Guard Williams, Gobiel (M. D.), 
DeMarest and Fairhaven Warner. 



"Always a good sweetheart" — by our 
Anderson alias Truesdale. 



"Hunting genius" Perry goes hunting for 
rabbits and returns with the dead borrowed 
dog. Has eye of an eagle. 



Parking is cold in the winter. Let's lis- 
ten to the radio-Lindbergh. 



Is it so that Sophie Dubiel's delight has 
been disregarding him? Yes, more noticeably 

Tuesday afternoons. 



Who sent Mr. Brooks his valentine? Ask 
Dutton, he must have had his red petticoat 
on. 



Noise, noise everywhere. Berkman and 
Kroudvird (the old lady) at it again. Did- 
ja know that little Berkman is our class 
daddy? 



Point of order. What? Yes. It's Tom- 
asik. Has loads of scandal and worries in 
Dartmouth. Who's been calling Eleanor by 
telephone? 



Trying to follow Clarke and McArdle 
from Shawmut Ave. to Green St. easily dis- 
couraged the attempt of chasing. 



What makes people late at the chemistry 
club meeting was clearly shown by one of 
its members. Excuses were fully discussed 
the following Monday. 



The third year chemistry class reveals sup- 
er basketball to the second years. Just ask 
them. 



THAT'S ALL. 



CO-ED CHATTER 

Boys will be boys and girls will be girls but when you have girls -f- boys 
in a Textile School then you have got something! 

The Age of Chiselry. 

Maybe the boys get the credit for high class chiseling — but how do you 
suppose some of the co-eds obtained the good old ensign which they so 
proudly exhibit? That's chiseling!! The credit goes, however, to the young 
lady who succeeds in chiseling a Phi Psi Jacket. 

What Price Glory. 

Says one co-ed to another, "Why should I have to pay three dollars ath- 
letic fee", — but who wears out the front door bell and who proudly says, "Oh 
yes — I go to Textile School," when on those rare occasions the team gives 
the local papers a smashing victory.

A Record! 

It's a well-known fact out in North Dartmouth that another Rin-tin- 
tin is in the making. At the tender age of three months this famous pup 
frightened prowlers! We'd like to believe it — but Statia says so! 

? ? ? ? 

It takes a broadminded janitor to walk into the girls' locker room and 
without saying a word clean up shattered glass, strewn powder and broken 
chairs. No. he didn't say a word — but we can't stop him from thinking. 

"Snuggle On Your Shoulder". 

You might think one co-ed from S. D. was doing that very thing when 
she corners an instructor now and then — but it's all in innocent fun — she's 
just talking and talking about this and about that and everything — but the 
day of davs was when she missed the town election!! 

A New Course of Study. 

One co-ed has petitioned for a course in "Famous Lab. Expressions". 
It seems she is becoming known by asking "What does it mean when — ?" and 
"What would you do if — ?" and many other similar questions. To have an 
instructor in this line would save her many embarrassing moments. A nom- 
ination is in order! ! 

Better Than Walking. 

Riding in a rumble seat has never been known to be extreme comfort — 
but the height of discomfort was riding in the back of a roadster which had 
no seat. It seems, however, two fair co-eds, in order to witness a basketball 
game did this very thing and 'tho they were not willing to show their bruises 
and scars the next day, their pained expressions betrayed them — and they still 
think Providence is more than 32 miles from here. All in all it's worth it — 
so they say!?

Let me but do my work from day to day 
In field or forest, at desk or loom, 
In roaring market-place or tranquil room; 
Let me but find it in my heart to say, 
When vagrant wishes beckon me away 
This is my work; my blessing, not my doom; 
Of all who live, I am the one by whom 
This work can be done in the right way. 
Then shall I see it not too great nor small, 
To suit my spirit and to prove my powers. 
Then shall I cheerful greet the laboring hours 
And cheerful turn, when the long shadows fall 
At eventide to play and love and rest, 
Because I know for me my work is best. 

— Van Dyke.

The success of the 1932 Fabricator tvas 
mostly due to the appreciated cooperation 
of our advertisers, without whose interests 
this volume would not have been published. 

The modern trend is toward efficient ad- 
vertising through the medium of the period- 
ical, so, tvhenever possible, %ve urge our read- 
ers to patronize the concerns who have 
advertising space in this annual. 



The NEW C&K 
Precision Family of Looms 



Crompton & Knowles Loom Works realizes that there are enough 
looms of most types already in existence, and consequently is 
committed to the policy of recommending, not an increase in 
the number of existing looms, but a replacement of old looms 
with fewer and more efficient new ones. 

The NEW C&K Precision Family does not represent 
a redesigning of old looms but entirely new construction along 
automotive principles, with roller bearings and simplified parts. 

At first glance the layman might think the looms not 
radically different from the old. But the millman instantly 
sees the carefully machined surfaces that mark the definite 
departure from the rough castings that have been characteristic 
of loom manufacture. Incidentally, these machined surfaces 
bespeak the tremendous investment and modernization which 
Crompton & Knowles had to make in its own production 
equipment as a prerequisite to this new loom. 

We are glad through this modernization of our plant to 
give you better looms for less money- These same precision 
looms can give you a better product at less cost.
